A new Year and New plants for "The Shambles"

A new year, our 26th at "The Shambles" sees warm temperatures, satisfactory rain and an effort to replace lost plants , add new ones and continue the vitality of our collections.
Livistona chinesis x 2, Coffee arabica x 2 and Duranta lorentzii x 2 all added in NW garden areas in December 2017

HERB COTTAGE   31/12/2017. Very prompt delivery with plants arriving in good condition
Salvia mexicana 'Limelight'  2       We have one good specimen but want to try it elsewhere.
Iris virginica  Iris versicolorBlue Flag Iris versicolor is a flowering herbaceous perennial plant, growing 10–80 centimetres high. This iris tends to form large clumps from thick, creeping rhizomes. The unwinged, erect stems generally have basal leaves that are more than 1 cm wide. Leaves are folded on the midribs so that they form an overlapping flat fan. The well developed blue flower has 6 petals and sepals spread out nearly flat and have two forms. The longer sepals are hairless and have a greenish-yellow blotch at their base. The inferior ovary is bluntly angled. Flowers are usually light to deep blue (purple and violet are not uncommon) and bloom during May to July. Fruit is a 3-celled, bluntly angled capsule. The large seeds can be observed floating in fall.  1. Don't know if this will work here.
